Arthur Curry, the human-born heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, goes on a quest to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land.
Director James Wan believed that what makes Aquaman unique is his Atlantean heritage, saying, "We're used to superhero movies where the threat is from another dimension or aliens from another universe coming here and trying to destroy our Earth. But we haven't seen one where the main threat is from a massive, massive civilization that is right under our nose, in the ocean.... The idea that there could be a massive civilization living right underneath [us] that we don't know about is kind of scary and exciting."
A king fights only for his own nation. You fight for everyone.
When Arthur meets his mother prior to getting the trident, she says to him you're a hero. She has been at the core of the Earth since Arthur was a child and was alone. How would she know anything about his heroic exploits.
The closing credits are a montage of models of the film's characters, locations and scenes.
The UK theatrical version was cut to remove bloody detail to secure a 12A rating. That version was also used for the home media release.
